We stayed at Manuels for just one night in August 2013. We arrived late on a classic freezing Taupo evening so it was great that the aircon unit heated the room up quickly. Unfortunately there was quite a big draught coming in under the door so we had to leave it on all night just to keep the room a comfortable temperature. So the noise from the aircon unit plus road noise meant a fairly noisy night but it wasn't unbearable.
The view from 805 was lovely, absolutely picture-book perfect.
The furnishings in the room are very nice and it didn't have the sterile/boring feel of many hotel rooms.
I thoroughly endorse another reviewer's comment that the temperature of the water changes dramatically with the tiniest movement of the mixer. The water can be scalding hot. It would be great if there was a warning sign as everyone should be aware of this before they step into the shower/put their hands under the tap.
We both really enjoyed our breakfast in the dining room. Standard buffet fare but a very welcoming hostess and everything was hot and delicious.
We didn't get to try out the spa or grotto etc but the facilities definitely looked lovely.
Overall we enjoyed the stay, had a good sleep and breakfast before continuing our trip.
